Abstract

The effects of aircraft emissions on the current and projected climate of our planet may be the most serious long term environmental issue facing the aviation industry. The climate impact drivers are increasingly urgent, with actions (e.g. cap and trade schemes, CO2 emissions standards) to mitigate impacts are being introduced or contemplated throughout the world. The elements of the U.S. strategy to reduce aviation's climate impacts are: better scientific understanding and integrated analyses; clean and energy efficient aircraft technologies; aviation alternative fuels; clean and energyefficient operational procedures; and policy, environmental standards and market-based options. Goals include mid term carbon neutral growth and long term absolute reductions.
